In this paper, we derive error estimates in Lp-norm, 1≦p≦∞, for the ℒ2-Finite Element approximation to solutions of boundary value problems, where the coefficients are functions of bounded variation. The ℒ2-Finite Element Method was introduced in [3] and was shown to be effective for problems with non-smooth coefficient.
